Charming couple’s cottage offers centrally located accommodation in the heart of the historic town of Tenterden, ideal for keen walkers looking for a countryside escape.

Set on the north-eastern edge of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this little gem of a cottage is the perfect romantic getaway for your smooth and furry loved ones. Known as the ‘Jewel of the Weald’, Tenterden offers over 1000 years of history, glorious Georgian and Victorian architecture, three wonderful dog-friendly pubs and exquisite landscape all around. Catch a steam train on the Kent & East Sussex Railway, visit Dame Ellen Terry’s 16th-century Smallhythe Place (dogs outside only), and enjoy delicious local wines at Chapel Down’s canine-cordial Tenterden Vineyard (both 3 miles).

Inside you’ll find a sweet and traditional Kent cottage interior. Unwind in the intimate lounge, amidst old beams and around the glowing wood burner, reminiscing on wild days of adventure, tranquil country wanders and dramatic new discoveries. Prepare fine local produce in the bright and breezy kitchen, and enjoy al fresco delights on the patio or in the charming summer house at the end of the garden. Upstairs, soak in a steaming bath before retiring to your gorgeous king-size bedroom with its fabulous brass bed.

Further afield, explore the quaint winding streets, independent shops, pubs, restaurants and galleries of Rye (11 miles), and Hastings’ beautiful beach (check seasonal guidelines), castle, parks and gardens, museums and sea front (20 miles). The Tenterden steam train will take you to magnificent 14th-century Bodiam Castle (10 miles), surrounded by a moat that reflects its majesty so splendidly (dogs in the grounds only). Doggies will love to race free on the golden stretches of Camber Sands and Broomhill Sands (15 miles), Winchelsea and Pett Level Beaches (14.5/17 miles) and the huge shingle shoreline of St Leonards Beach (20 miles). You and your canine companions will love Bedgebury National Pinetum and Forest (15 miles), one of the many local beauty spots.

Great location for the delightful town of Tenterden 2 minutes to shops, coffee shops and restaurants. A few more minutes and you are in the countryside with lots of footpaths ideal for dog walking. The cottage has everything you want but could do with a bit of a refresh.

The property is in a fantastic location, at one end of the road is Tesco for supplies at a moments notice, and at the other is the fantastic Vine pub. Tenterden itself has wonderful amenities. Inside the property is sufficient, but many of the furnishings feel run down and in need of replacement. The living room felt in most dire need of an update,Read more but the bedroom, bathroom and kitchen all had what you needed. Hide

The cottage location in Tenterden is perfect. The high street which the cottage is just off, has everything needed for shops and places to eat. The location itself was also fantastic for getting around Kent. We were no more than an hour drive for the North coast including Whitstable, Chatham and 20 minutes for Rye, Dungeness. The cottage is small, Read morethe name gives you a clue! Most things are supplied, the bed is very comfortable though the stairs may be a problem for those with mobility issues. Hide
